Adamstown is a small town with a real nice environment.
The neighborhood and the people are friendly. Adamstown has a lot to offer with a Library, a Grocery Store, a YMCA , and a Swimming Pool. I am very happy living in Adamstown , PA. I have been there all of my life.
Review Adamstown
I've grown up in Adamstown and its a quiet and safe town. It's nice when you walk into Weavers Markets and see so many people you know. Having gone to Adamstown Elementary, I know mostly everyone that lives in Adamstown.
Good atmosphere full of many different types of people, and a lot to see. Not much to do, but good for anybody who wants to be in a small area with not much going on inside. Businesses are always opening and closing, and moving, and people are always moving around. I wouldn't dislike to live here again, but if I got to choose, I would live somewhere else to experience a different life style and way of life.
